A function checkMain() defined in module Allchecks.py is being used in two different programs In program 1 as
and in program 2 as
Why are the functions call statements different in each program?
In program 1, the complete module ie., Allchecks.py is imported as ‘import Allchecks’ and hence to use a specific function in the module , the module name must be added before the function name.
In program 2, only the required function is imported from the module as ‘ from Allchecks import checkMain( )’ and hence the function can be used independently without mentioning the module name.
